In this episode of the Direct Selling SHIFT podcast, Blake sits down with SheriLynn Alcala. From being a stay-at-home mom to three young children and navigating the challenges of paycheck-to-paycheck living, she discovered a life-changing opportunity in the direct selling industry through social media. She not only climbed to the pinnacle of the company but maintained her position as a global top 10 income earner for an impressive nine years.
SheriLynn’s journey is a real rollercoaster of overcoming tough times and bouncing back, proving that going all in, having a clear vision, and trusting yourself can turn setbacks into stepping stones to a path of personal and professional growth beyond what you thought was possible.
In January 2023, she made a strategic shift from the field to corporate, assuming the role of Head of Field & Strategy. A true advocate of turning setbacks into setups, she shares a philosophy of using obstacles as motivation to persevere. When faced with failure, she embraces the concept of failing forward, extracting valuable lessons to continually improve. Quitting is not in her vocabulary.
Tune in to the podcast for an empowering conversation on overcoming challenges, achieving dreams, and embracing the journey of relentless pursuit.
